The Bad Deal and The Price Hike constitute the Quality Rye family of websites. We save you money by making the world more transparent. We make restaurant pricing and daily deals easier to understand. In addition, we serve as a general purpose food blog, highlighting issues that are important to us, including Hurricane Sandy relief, culinary start-ups, digital cookbooks and efforts to extricate so-called ethnic foods from the shackles of authenticity and the burden of being cheap. Our language is critical, mathematical and most of all, humorous.
Ryan Sutton is the editor. He’s worked as a Bloomberg Muse food critic since 2005 and he is a proud graduate of Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. Ryan splits his time between Manhattan and Long Beach. Contact him on Twitter, Facebook, or via e.mail at ryanpsutton at gmail dot com.
We’re flattered that our sites have received a variety of generous offers, but right now we’re happy growing our portfolio of web properties independently. The Price Hike and The Bad Deal are fully owned, operated and edited by Ryan Sutton, and no other individual or organization.
